COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
These are strange and tech-rich times we live. Computers dominate even the most basic of tasks. Almost everyone uses a device that can do amazing things to connect us to information and people. These tasks are carried out by simple or complex computing devices that rely on code. Code consists of basic numbers or letters that are arranged to form very complex ideas. You use code everyday. Code is running in and around us all the time.

Cipher — a 7.5% Belgian Blond brewed with this technology in mind. Working with @c7five, we made a label which contains a code. People who can solve the code will be elligible for fabulous prizes. Details will be forthcoming.

Bomber. Pours a very clean golden color with not much of a head. Nose is yeast, apple cider, and some slight mulling spice. Light bodied and clean, with flavors of bready yeast, grass, coriander(?) and some crisp apples. Effervescent, crisp, and decent. Nothing special and not the best out of Half Acre.

Poured a light golden yellow with aromas of bread, rye, lemon, and some yeast. Flavors are the same not bad overall, but felt like it was missing something.

sherm1016 (1178) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2013
22oz bottle, split with my bride. Pours a crystal clear, golden amber color with a thin whit head and just a touch of lacing. Aroma is yeasty, clove, bubblegum. Medium on the palate with fizzy carbonation. Flavor is sweet, bready, yeasty, cereal, lots of bubblegum, some spiciness, rye perhaps, with a spicy, bready finish. Interesting.

hopscotch (9559) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle... Mostly clear yellow ale with a tiny, white head that’s gone in the blink of an eye. The bouquet is mainly spicy, but also provides estery, phenolic traces of pluot and smoke. Medium-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and vibrant carbonation. The flavor tips its cap toward the bitter side of balance and - much like the aroma - boasts a generous measure of fruity, spicy notes from the farmhouse yeast. Finishes crisp and modestly bitter. Interesting. Bottle courtesy of KickInChalice!

jtclockwork (8965) - , New Jersey, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Bottle. Pours gold with white head. Nose/taste of lemon, yeast, bready rye, banana and fruity esters. Medium body. Finishes a bit dry and bready with some lemon/fruity esters.

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 16, 2012
22 oz. bottle served in a FFF pint glass. A: Pours a clear golden yellow with a half finger pure white head forming on the pour. The head recedes quickly to a very thin ring. S: Yeast, light fruity esters, some wheat and pale malts all fill the nose at once. T: Some peppery yeast and some fruitiness are up front. The pale malts and light grassy hops shine mid-palate. There is some light creamy wheat is on the finish. M: Light and creamy in the mouth. The carbonation is medium and the finish is wheaty and fruity. The drinkability is high. O: A very solid beer. Nice combination of yeast, fruity esters, wheat and malt. The creamy texture is nice and I could drink multiples of this on a hot summer day. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 03-28-2012

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2012
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has a lot of Belgian yeast as well as some biscuit malt. The flavor is more complex. I get some nice yeast and orange citrus notes, as well as some coriander. There is also some sweetness from the biscuit malt. The alcohol is also noticeable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

fraternie (844) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Yeasty and citrusy, with lemon and fresh baked bread flavors above moderate hops. Medium length, sessionable brew.

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2012
22oz bottle. Dull golden brew with some white head. Nose is quite funky with some spices and citrus. Almost like a hefe with a wheat bite and banana esters.
